    LOL! Y’all are having fun with this one! Hopefully I can find another pic and do this again sometime. Trouble is this is probably my best one!

  • So Rob, when do you tell us what was really going on?

    You want the real story, eh? Well, it’s not much of one really. We were at the Tower of London a couple years ago. This guy is called a Beefeater I think. Not sure why. But he’s one of the Tower Guards and he was giving us a tour. I just raised the camera and popped the shot. That’s all. Just part of the tour.

  • According to http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/questions/Beefeaters.htm:

    The guards at the Tower [of London] are called Yeoman Warders or Beefeaters. The name Beefeaters is thought to come from the French word – buffetier. Buffetiers were guards in the palace of French kings. They protected the king’s food.

    Beefeaters were originally established in 1485 as King Henry VII’s bodyguard, immediately after his victory at Bosworth. They are best known for their scarlet and gold dress uniforms which date from 1552 and are worn on state occasions.

    The Beefeaters used to guard the Tower and its prison. Today, they work mostly as guides for the many visitors to the Tower of London.

    As well as their duties at the Tower, Yeoman Warders also attend the Coronation of the Sovereign, lying in state, the Lord Mayor’s Show and other state and charity functions.

  • “I am a Beefeater — and sir — I demand you hand over your Big Mac — NOW!”

    The lady in the crowd is saying: “Honey — I think he’s serious!”
